WTCSiteAfter911Attack1This weekend is the 10th Anniversary attacks on 9/11. On Talk of the Sound Radio tomorrow we will take a look back and look forward. I usually try to keep to myself on 9/11 because it is a very emotional day and I usually end up wanting to punch someone. At least this year we can celebrate the double-tap performed on Osama bin Ladin by our Seal Team Six. Not sure we can avoid the weather, floods and power outages. The Iona College framework is out so we can talk about that too. And there is always Notre Dame football and what was a tough week for the Irish after a terrible performance against South Florida. Up next, Michigan.
